Pirates | Statuses of Gerrit Cole, Charlie Morton uncertain

Pittsburgh Pirates management has given no indication of what they'll with SP Gerrit Cole after he makes his major league debut on Tuesday, June 11. SP Charlie Morton, who's scheduled to start on Thursday, June 13, stated that he's uncertain about where he'll be going forward, as well. "All indications are this is what they want me to do," Morton said. "Having not pitched in the big leagues for a year, I think the concern is Thursday and no one's worried too much about anything past that."

Fantasy Tip: The Pirates will need to make a roster move to activate Morton, and it could be to demote Cole, depending on a number of factors. But the club could shuffle someone from the back end of the roster, too. It's safe to say that the Bucs are allowing the information they'll get from the performances of their starters in the coming days to play some part in their decisions.
